Abstract.

We report a case of colovenous fistula to the inferior mesenteric vein complicating diverticulitis and mimicking coloureteral fistula. This is the second reported case of venous intravasaation of barium complicating diverticulitis that mimicks coloureteral fistula. Radiographic features and characteristics differentiating these two entities are presented.

Key words: Barium enema—Barium intravasation—Computed tomography—Diverticulitis—Fistulas.
